The CDC suggestions to curb heroin use:

— Address the strongest risk factor for heroin addiction: addiction to prescription opioid painkillers.
— Increase access to substance abuse treatment services, including Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), for opioid addiction.
— Expand access to and training for administering naloxone to reduce opioid overdose deaths.
— Ensure that people have access to integrated prevention services, including access to sterile injection equipment from a reliable source, as allowed by local policy.
— Help local jurisdictions to put these effective practices to work in communities where drug addiction is common.



"For a hundred years now we've been singing war songs about addicts. I think all along we should have been singing love songs to them. Because the opposite of addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is connection." Johann Hari
